Good question.  I visit the forums here daily but it's a bit like a ghost town lately.

I check almost everyday, but haven't had a whole lot of time, but I miss everyone. How are you Kai?

Happy Belated Hallmark day to you too!!! YAY!

Flamethrowers are proof that somewhere, sometime, someone thought to themselves "You see those people over there? I sure would like to set them on fire, I'm just not close enough to get the job done."

I'm doing pretty well, thank you.  Hideously busy at work, though.  Take what you might consider to be busy, double it, and then add more, and that's a fairly good example.  Still, it's productive work and we're getting a lot done, and I'm making a good living.

Personally I'm still really excited about Shroud of the Avatar.

I've been busy.

Not the normal, "I'm doing the jobs of 2-3 people" busy.

Missing 4 days of personal email, busy.  Sad to say, if I'm not reading my personal emails, I certainly can't find the time to do other things.

The work-life balance search eludes me.

You know, Abner, I've been having a similar problem on and off lately.  Mostly on.  When I actually end up with free time I find that I spend most of it sleeping.

Sleeping!  eh?  what's that?  speak into the cone, youngster!

work is the life suck.

it doesn't help that I have major landscaping projects to tackle at the homestead... another 75 feet of 3-4 foot deep trench to dig (but I'm renting a back-hoe this time, no more hand-digging for me, that was STUPID) to complete my drainage project, then removing some stumps, then leveling out the terrain along the back of the house to allow water to flow around without pooling, etc. etc. etc.  I just can't catch a break!

Work really is the life suck.  It's clear to me that the reason my life flashes by so quickly these days is because of work.  It's kind of distressing.  Very distressing in fact.

Oh, and I'm that sites like this are full of dusty tumbleweeds thanks to social media sites like Facebook and Twitter.

But that's only the tip of the iceberg, once you consider Google+, Tumblr, reddit, Snapchat, and at least a dozen other large and bustling websites, distracting most everyone from the "old" forums.  Heck, I don't even have time for the work-based forums.

I wish I had more time to hang out here.  I wish more of the old crowd did.  But it looks like many of us were progressing through life at similar phases....

Single (playing lots)
Dating (still playing)
married, but no kids (stilll... playing...)
baby/ies (<snore>)
kids (ah, some time to myself, I'll play!  <snore>)

And personally... I know some of you continue to enjoy the game, perhaps more than ever before, but not me.  After spending 8+ hours sitting at my desk tied to an office computer, very nearly the last thing I want to do is play a game that is just a memory of what it was, and with these new time constraints.

Sometimes I wish I lived in a log cabin, ala Little House on the Prairie...  Ma, Pa, kids, shotgun, dog, horses, some land, cows, chickens.  Beef drying in the attic.   Hay stacked in the barn.  No social media to keep up with, no emails, no telephones, no worries about losing power (!!).  Sure, there were other problems to worry about (like the displaced indigenous population, wolves, bears, lack of medical technology, etc.) but you could CONCENTRATE!  There are so many distractions in modern life!

Well... a belated Valentine's Day to you all.  I think of you often, when there's time for such amusements.  I hope you're all doing well....

I'm really not a particularly large fan of social networking.  In fact, I dislike social networking nearly all of the time.  There's a such thing as being too connected, and that's a good example of it.  The "log cabin" days are behind us, now.  Even those who do live in a log cabin on the edge of a vast forest probably still have cell coverage and facebook apps on their smartphones...

... "Look at the size of this log that Pa brought in for the fire today!", etc...

Commenting on another part of your message, I'm 100% with you on WoW.  It really feels, for lack of a better word, homogenized.  Like the guy that's running WoW development now used to watch Sesame Street as a kid and he really hated the "Which of These Things is Not Like The Other?" video shorts.  Seems like he is compelled to make sure that all of WoW is nothing but a Zero-Sum game where all races, classes, and abilities invariably have the same overall effect.

In any case, here's hoping that SotA can be our "home game" for the next ten years.
